Look what my Post Office had for me
I finally got the yarn i ordered about 2 weeks ago. It's a bag of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, a bag of Rowan Yorkshire Tweed 4-ply in Barley and 6 more of Yorkshire Tweed, 2 in each color - Butterscotch, Blessed and Lustre.
I'm so happy!!! The cashmerino is sooo soft!
And guess what - it all cost 89$+10$ shipping! I bought it on ebay, from Jannette's Rare Yarns.

Hi KnittingNat

You lucky lucky girl!! Debbie Bliss yarns are my all time favorite. If the post man had brought me that I would think that all my Christmas's had come at once.

I am using DB Rialto at the moment and as with all her yarns it's lovely and soft.
I am dead jelous I have never seen a bargain like that on Ebay!

I have birthday money to blow but I can't make a decision. There are just so many choices... I guess I need to make a list and go from there... Lucky you! Nothing like a happy yarn delivery from the postman!

Wow! Lovely colours there

I don't like my postman at the moment. There's been postal strikes here which means I still haven't got my Simply Knitting magazine even though it's out in the shops

Nice. I love getting yarn in the mail. And that Cashmerino Aran is so nice. It's about time I got some more.

Enjoy your yarn!
